When leaving the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra in Summer 2015, French conductor Emmanuel Krivine will join the Scottish Chamber Orchestra as the Orchestra’s new Principal Guest Conductor. The appointment will begin officially in September 2015 for an initial period of four years. Krivine and the Scots have a close relationship since the late 1990s. This renewed partnership will allow the conductor and Orchestra to explore new opportunities and repertoire together, both on the concert platform and in the recording studio.

SCO Chief Executive Roy McEwan commented: “I am delighted to welcome Emmanuel Krivine to the SCO family as our new Principal Guest Conductor, an appointment which is enthusiastically supported by our players. This follows many memorable performances over the years and is a natural strengthening of the relationship between Emmanuel and the Orchestra. I’m sure our audience will enjoy his refined musicianship across a wide range of repertoire alongside his charismatic presence.”

Emmanuel Krivine said: « I am really happy to be joining the outstanding artistic team of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. I have always enjoyed my collaborations over many years with this fine orchestra. There is a wonderful family atmosphere, which results in great music-making, and the musicians have an exceptional way of listening to each other.  I look forward to realising some exciting projects in the future across a broad spectrum of repertoire, to refining the musical language that we share, and to closening my relationship with Scotland and its audiences.”

Krivine is also Music Director of the French orchestra ‘Chambre Philharmonique’, which is celebrating this month its tenth anniversary
